Well that makes sense!! I wish I could look forward to that – Cam’s sub-contracted so he’ll OWE money come tax season! But it totally makes sense – most people use their tax return to buy big things … and why not an engagement ring?

yeah i think that makes sense…tax returns are awesome, and i think guys like to squirrel it away, or use it towards buying big things, and i hope in your case, it’s a sparly! i think my BF can afford to shell out for my ring in the nexxt month or two, given the budget i gave him…. if i get a ring after my 30th (which is in mid March), i might be very very sad!!!

I think tax season is often overlooked for proposals. We come out of the holidays and start dreaming of Valentines, warmer weather and paid vacation. A fat tax return isn’t always counted on and it gives some the nice financial boost needed for the e-ring. I like to file and forget so the money feels like a windfall, but it might be best that this season remain overlooked. I can imagine asking if the bf filed his taxes yet and trying to estimate when a proposal might happen based on his file date–and don’t let the gov’t be slow on that return and I’m sitting around dreaming of a ring.

I thought I was getting a tax return proposal last year…. but the return wasn’t as much as we had hoped and so I had to wait (some more) until August!

Hehe no… but I did get a salary bonus proposal! He got his in Sept, and we got engaged Sept 19th. Poor boy, he worked hard all year and then had to spend all his reward to get me! He doesn’t seem to mind, thankfully 😛

I’m in the same position! My bf and I chatted last night and he said depending on what his return is he will start ring shopping.  He said hopefully we’ll be engaged sometime between summer and the end of this year. Our 4 yr anniversary is in July and we have a tentative trip to VA this summer too…maybe then!? YAY for tax returns!

I am actually slightly hoping to have a tax return proposal. lol… Once he gets the money (he usually gets a good amount) it’ll be easy to buy something nice… say a ring. lol…

I was wondering about this a few days ago..BF should be getting at least around $1000 back. It would be wonderful it he could put that towards the ring account we agreed he should open, but he desperately needs a new laptop so I’m positive that is where most of it will go..the other half will probably end up going to bills :((

We have my 2 wedding bands on lay-a-way at the jewelry store where my engagement ring was purchased! I can not wait until my fiance gets his return so we can go get my rings! I can not wait to see what they will look like all together!
